Abstract

The authors present 2 patients who underwent neuroendovascular procedures in syngo iFLOW produced that use the dynamic of fluid in several types of intracranial pathologies. As part of a combined CT/angiography suite, iFLOW offered the major advantage of immediate detection or exclusion of intracranial complication without patient transfer. The study of fluid dynamics constitutes a cornerstone for the evaluation of various intracranial vascular pathologies. These applications include the isolation of cerebral aneurysms by embolization and clipping, embolisation of malformations, as well the evaluation of vasooclussive diseases. The emergence of techniques such as syngo iFLOW, which give a comprehensive picture of angiography, constitute a element that can to contribute to the decision of conduct clinics. Siemens has developed a novel based system which is able to reconstruct in achieving angiography techniques colors define intracranial flow characteristics in a single image. With this technique, is possible to obtain a comprehensive picture of cerebral angiography.
